i think the SWAB is a no no now. It was found that the tb was closed at wide open throttle. Looking for my proof of this as we speak. If anyone can confirm this please do so.

^^^^ you still can do the mod, just a 1/4 turn, not the full. i believe that was found to solve the problem. hand tight until waterboy hops on and he can give us all an update. (the w on SWAB is for waterboy) <---- its his thing, i'll let him give the real advice

You can still do it, but just rotate the butterflies 1/2way as opposed to fully rotated like I had told people at first. When I did my port and polish, I completely removed the butterflies and rod altogether.

I personally think the chip will do more for you than the SWAB. It was first done about 5 years ago when my car was new and it SEEMED to help. Since then it has made the rounds on the boards and I feel really crappy about it.

I just did the SWAB MOD last week! It definately feels better than before... My focus is definately quicker for sure. What should I be looking for as far as performance goes??? Please detail the info! I am excited about what I have seen so far but if I need to reverse it please tell me why. Thanks!!!
